I don’t have a daughter, only two sons, so I miss out on the delicious experience that is to shop for little girls. Of course I enjoy the fun stuff I find for my boys, but there seems to be so many more options of colors, styles, and themes in the feminine world! Maybe this is just my impression, or maybe it’s only my kids that don’t like any variety. Give them something blue, green or red and throw one super hero or two, and you have two happy little men.
This project was a fun trip to the little girls world. I found this desk and chair for a ridiculous price at a local tag sale and just couldn’t pass it, even knowing I wouldn’t be able to touch it in a long time. About a year later, it was finally time to tackle it!
My inspiration came from this picture I saw on Instagram by Susan @sawnailandpaint (Click on picture to go to her IG post). I am a big fan of her work! I love the contrast between the two shades of pink. It’s delicate and striking at the same time.
My color choice was aqua blue/turquoise as I’ve always been a blue kinda girl, even as a kid. I just listed this set, so I hope it won’t take long until another blue kinda girl wants to have this set in her bedroom.
Oh, and I added an adorable mirror I had bought with the intention of using for staging but ended up never touching. I think it looks perfect with this set.
Let me know what you think!
It was A LOT of work removing the previous paint. No light sanding here. It was stripping and sanding all the way down!
Colors I used were Cool Aqua, Icy Moon Drops and Super White. All by Benjamin Moore.
